Don’t be a sicko

Winter: A lovely time of year for snow, sleet and sniffles.

Widespread influenza activity is being reported throughout the country – but there are ways you can avoid becoming a sick statistic:

  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing, and throw the tissue away after use – don’t store it in your pocket and find it next winter. And remember: you have an elbow to sneeze or cough into if tissues aren’t available.
  • Kill germs – wash your hands. No soap and water? Grab some hand sanitizer and go to town.
  • Don’t touch your eyes.
  • It’s tough, but try to avoid sick people.
  • Sick? Stay home and prevent others from getting sick. Your co-workers will high-five you upon your healthy return.
